I tried out this millet pulao which turned so good!

I had some boiled chickpeas that I added to this yummy vegetable pulao. Taste and health in every mouthful loaded with juicy steamed vegetables.

This is what I call a real one-pot meal!

Eating guide:

  • Food group: millets and vegetables
  • Together this combination can be a meal by itself.
  • Millets are gluten-free, rich in fibre and high in nutritional value. They are a good option to add variety to your meals or when you want to go grain-free.
  • Raw and steamed vegetables are great to make a meal filling, refreshing and contain enzymes that help with digestion.
